HEARTLAND DOLCETTO LAGREIN LANGHORNE CREEK

Heartland is the place between the vines that offers the best view of the gum trees. They produce wines that remain true to the recognized Australian style, while ensuring a balanced structure and appealing texture. Heartland creates food-friendly wines from their vineyards in the cool climate growing region of Langhorne Creek (one of Australia’s oldest wine regions). Heartland Dolcetto & Lagrein is a blend of two northern Italian varieties that are ideally suited to the Langhorne Creek climate.

The Dolcetto was cool fermented on skins for seven days before being crushed and matured in stainless steel in order to preserve the fresh, floral notes of the variety. The Lagrein was matured in new French oak barrels after fermentation to create a rounder, softer texture.

2013 was a cooler year with a long dry autumn giving us a longer growing season, concluding in April. Skin and tannin development were accented further by our strongest ever Lagrein component.

The brightness and depth of Lagrein complement the floral and fruit driven Dolcetto. Deep ruby in colour, it enjoys all the aromas of a garden in spring. The soft palate offers blackberry, liquorice and violets and a long savoury finish. This is the most versatile wine in the heartland range for food pairing. Asian, Italian, French and any number of other cuisines make a fine accompaniment.


James Halliday: 91 Points

Enough oomph to appeal to shiraz drinkers and the character to make it a generally irresistible choice. This label has been putting out mid-table hits for years but this seasons release ramps up the weight and in the process, the selling proposition. Cloves, tar, musk and black cherries, with herbal nuances nestled into the sweet fruit. Tidy tannin and tasty at every turn.
